Best Pokémon Trainers

The Top Ten

1 Ash

Not only ash is one of the nicest guys in the world (which everyone should know), but also he is way more strong than other people say. After all, the reason why people say ash is suck is because he's apparently bad in battle. Yes, he never won a league, but winning at the league is way harder in the anime than the games. If the gym leader only have two mons you need to use the same ammount of pokemon. If Red from origin were in the real anime I don't know the number of time he would lose to brock or Giovanni. Also once you have all badges, you need to beat all participate trainers and elite four and the champ without losing! In the game not only you don't fight against trainers in tournament but if you lose to the league you can retry any time. So ash isn't that bad. Also, being the main character of the anime, the writer make him lose to trainer like Cameron and Ritchie even if this doesn't make sense. And speaking of Ritchie, I think that since Ash reached the indigo league, he ...more

Ash is the best trainer for me, I do see Alan so fierce, strong, competitive and can catch up to any Trainers, I also see Red that caught a Mewtwo and his defeats aren't that many, But for some Reason, Ash may not be strong but I still see, He can make the Pokemon World brighter again, With his Clever, Love, Kindness to all Pokemons and Trainers, Now tell me How many did Alan and Red helped, How many did Ash helped, Alan wanted to prove his the strongest mega trainer, Ash wanted to prove that his a Pokemon Master, Red wanted to catch Legendaries, See the difference, Ash doesn't want to be the strongest, Ash didn't want Legendaries cause he likes them Free, Some of you guys compare it by Strength, But we must remember... Strength is Important but Care is even more Important, I just hope you guys had a reflection, Also.. isn't that Greninja and Ash has more united than Red and his Charizard, Ash lost to Every Pokemon League but Ash did everything for Pokemon to be better and greater...

Even though he did do some stupid things he has to be number 1. Teaching Snorlax six moves against that one battle frontier person and also teaching his Heracross sleep talk against Tobias. He is clearly the best.

He is a legend
A legendary pokemon master

2 Red

Can you guys think well, We all know that Red is by far maybe the Strongest, But this List is about the Best, Not By how Strong they are, Ash helped many people, Did Red even helped that many, You guys are in a daze by now. Ash is not that strong but he helped a lot of people, What did Red do? Catch a Mewtwo? Win Pokemon Leagues? I just wanna tell you guys this, Ash never caught a Mewtwo cause he never wanted to catch it nor capture it. I hope you guys are all Listening, Its in the Heart, Not in your Body. You guys are comparing them by How Strong They are... Go to a list which compares whose the strongest and not this list cause this list is the Best from the word Best it means How Good They are, How Talented They are, How many People liked them

Guys wake up! You can't compare Ash with Red! You can compare Red with Blue or you can compare Ash with Garry, but you can not compare Ash with Red. Ash is the anime Red, Garry is the anime Blue. I don't count the Origins series to it. - InnI

Now I'm not too sure about this choice. Ash is definitely not it as he will never become the very best do to the writers. Ash will never be league champion. But Yellow or Hareta may be better then him, and what about professor oak?

Red also caught Moltres, Zappos and Articuno

4 Giovanni

He knew how dangerous Mewtwo was, and he gathered the Master ball as the last way out if he would fail to controll Mewtwo. Giovanni was going to save the world.

Well he controlled Mewtwo in kanto before ran away!

Giovani is so good Pokemon trainer

This place belongs to Steven the Hoenn champion..He has Metagross while other champions don't have mega evolved pokemon except diantha but he is still the strongest..he can defeat Alan while ash can't so he deserves to be ahead

5 Brock

He is not too strong

What are you saying, Brock could beat everybody with his great intelligence

Her is a gym leader

I'm a pervert

6 You

Me and everyone else could take on Ash, but have more of a challenge with Red.

Sure, Red, Ash, and other trainers are great, but you, the protagonist, is by FAR the greatest trainer. It's in your power how you train your Pokemon, and that outcome will eventually come. Heck, we can even be a wee bit overpowered.

You always have to beat the other trainers definitely you're the best

How is your/my own character number 6! Ash is dumb, and you people like him better than YOURSELF!

7 May May May is a female companion to Ash in the generation 3 anime. She was also the female character in Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire. May (anime) debuted in the 275th episode, "Get the Show on the Road!" She was going to be a trainer, but wasn't excited about it. After meeting a more.

According to me, May is the best coordinator.Her battle style is offensive. She is my favourite female trainer.

May, top best coordinators.. I don't know how to spell coordinators.. so sorry if I am wrong.

Well... she is GREAT at being a coordinator.

8 Gary

Gary is a tough guy... at least better than a average trainer and he won many battles from Ash too...

At least he knows his Pokemon!

Gary is best trainer because he hane mega bkastoise

9 Cynthia

Why are is Cynthia this low!? She is the best Pokemon trainer. She trains her Pokemon pretty good and could squash if they battle.

Cynthia is the strongest and not defeated ever in the animes

Whenever she's on screen I just look at her large boobs.

Brings back memories I don't remember which game but we were I this house and I fought her over and over and over again but kept losing I think that was the hardest part for me imn rthat game - Carri796

10 Tobias

He might be the powerful trainer till now. He might have even more powerful pokemon than darkrai and latias in his team.

He defeated all of Ash's 6 pokemon were defeated by only darkrai and latios and won the final match with only darkrai.

He beat the top guy in this list (ash)

Its patios actually. But yes he is tremoundously strong and has caught plenty of legendaries. He almost swept Ash when they battled.

The Contenders

11 Iris

Iris go iris

Iris sucks - FearMe

12 Serena Serena Serena has proven to be a kind and polite girl but she can also be openly rebellious towards her mother, Grace. In Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, she refused to wake up when Grace ordered her to, and gave a sassy response to her mother's call to watch the news. This tumultuous relationship more.

Serena is bad at Pokemon battles even worse than Ash

For me she is best and I like her

Get this jerk out!

13 Green

Green or Blue is Red's rival and is very strong considering he took down the Elite Four and Champion with ease which is shown in Pokemon Generations

She can basically match any opponent with her ditto

14 Sabrina Sabrina Sabrina is a fictional character in the Pokemon universe as the gym leader of the Saffron City Gym who specializes in psychic type Pokemon.

The girl controls stuff with her mind. She's beyond difficult to beat too.

Sabrina is hot

Why is Sabrina this low!? She controls the mighty Thu-fi-zer. That Articuno Zapdos and Moltres combined. Also, In the games I can never beat her without glitching a level one hundred.

15 Drake

You use to call me on my cell-phone

Drake - Hotline Bling

Are you kidding me? he have ditto... noob list

16 Professor Oak Professor Oak

Professor Oak is quite great of a trainer... you see he is a professor...
Like in one of the episodes, Oak showed a REALLY strong pidgey.

Professor means he should be good or better than an average trainer.
Also he taught Ash's Pokemon new attacks, defences, etc...

Professor oak counts because back in the first national Kanto league tournoment professor oak at aping age became the first champion in the world and red won the seventh kanto tourney.

17 Ethan

Ethan beat Red so Ethan deserves to be at least second. Ash gives his Pokemon to professors whenever they evolve, so Ethan is better than him, which makes Ethan best. He is the champion of two regions while ash is the champion of none. Ethan is like on of the only trainers to fully evolve his starter too.

Although Red I'd awesome, Ethan is the best because he beats Red and he has 16 badges and he is the champion of 2 regions.

Gold Fanboy 4 Life! He has 16 badges, beat Red, beat Lance, caught Ho-Oh and Lugia, caught the legendary dogs, - FrozenHatingPokefan

Why isn't he #1? - Plankton5165

She should be above misty

20 Lance

Dragonite... Why do you paralyze me so? WHY?

Lance is weak I swept his team using only my starter

How is he worse then serena,giovanni,brock AND ESPECIALLY ASH
